Small Business Administration (SBA) Set-Aside Programs

Government contracts can be set aside for iFOS® under the following certification programs and socio-economic categories:
The 8(a) program allows iFOS® to obtain sole source contracts with Federal agencies for quick set-asides when the normal procurement is just not feasible for immediate servicing. When a suitable procurement (over $150,000) has been identified, the procuring official offers the requirement to the SBA for award under the 8(a) Program. FAR Subpart 19.804-2, lists the exact information that must be contained in the offering letter. The letter must state the applicable NAICS code and size standard for the procurement, and include a copy of the statement of work. For a sole source under the competitive threshold, the proposed procurement can be offered for the 8(a) Program in general, on behalf of our 8(a) firm. Offer letters to procure iFOS’ services should be sent to the following SBA District Office that services our firm.

Please send offer letters to mdofferletters@sba.gov.
Depending on your requirements, you may order iFOS® professional services as a WOSB set-aside contract. The 8(m) program was developed by the SBA to allow socially and economically disadvantaged firms with expert capabilities equal access to business opportunities. The SBA enters into contracts with federal procuring agencies as the prime contractor, subcontracting the actual performance of the work to 8(m) companies. The 8(m) procurement cycle is significantly faster than any other means of contracting. When using the 8(m) contracting method, a program manager may simply select a firm as a suggested source and request that the procurement be pursued under the 8(m) program. As a reminder, the anticipated award price of the contract currently must not exceed the $4 million threshold.
